Security

We delete your personal information as soon as we no longer need it in connection with the purpose for which it was submitted or collected unless we are required by law to retain it for a longer time, and even then, we only retain it in accordance with this Privacy Policy. The criteria used to determine the retention period include the nature of the data collected, the purposes for which it is processed, and the necessity of retaining the data to provide our services.
